ACM SIGHPC Emerging Woman Leader in Technical Computing Award - Applications Now Open

The ACM SIGHPC Emerging Woman Leader in Technical Computing (EWL/TC) is a biennial award open to any woman who has engaged in HPC and technical computing research, education, and/or practice for 5-15 years since receiving her highest degree. This international award creates a new career milestone achievement, and consists of a $2,000 honorarium, travel support to the SC conference, and a recognition plaque. It also establishes a cohort of role models for students and professional who are just getting started in our field. 

The award is presented every two years, with the first presentation in November during SC17.

Computing Curricula 2020: ACM and IEEE-CS Need your Feedback

The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the IEEE Computer Society (IEEE-CS), with support from other organizations, are producing a new curricular report titled, “Computing Curricula 2020: An Overview Report” (CC2020) in an effort to retain global currency in the computing curricula guidelines. We invite you to participate in this project by responding to a brief survey found at HERE where you can provide your comments by responding to the survey prompts.  The survey should take between 3 and 5 minutes. Thank you!
